Evaluating 193 Countries to Year 2035: The Centre for Economics and Business Research’s “WORLD ECONOMIC LEAGUE TABLE 2021 [WELT2021]” Calls It As It Sees It

Economic Analysis has to incorporate, amongst other elements: Financial, Political, Scientific, and Social aspects into a ‘Going-Forward’ estimation. As to matters with which we personally engage daily, “Countries’ Interfaces” are of great importance. We constantly search for tools to bring more precision to our analyses for clients and ourselves. Such a tool is WELT2021.

We are impressed by what we ascertain are logical developments to be developed in the future, which are sourced in activities of today; as is reported in WELT2021. It is not easy to review 193 countries accurately, especially as to possible advances and shortcomings due to countries’ leaderships. As the adage goes: “The Fish Rots From The Head First.”, it is applicable to both government leaders and well as business ‘Nabobs’ decisions; those which affect their underlings and their public in general.

WELT2021 has added value as it quantifies growth or shrinkage in outputs for a number of years out to 2035; this is excellent! As aforementioned, decisions, good or bad, will eventually show up ‘downstream’ in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Purchasing Power Parity (PPP) results for all to see. In countries where political advocacy triumphs over judicious business assessment, for example, downturns are assured. As an example, if in America, a regime change shortly does occur, with a Washington, D.C. politician, ‘with a liberal history’, replaces a well-established conservative Businessman, one can reasonably expect economic seisms to occur. The current $27,000,000,000,000.00 in country debt, we expect should see inordinate increases. Since the politician has consistently, over many years, advocated hegemonic behavior around the world, military spending, for continuing warfare should increase, we expect. Also, if this occurs, expect a reduction in U.S. Sovereignty to be evidenced internally. Ergo, as the WELT2021 Analysis shows, in the future ‘Numero Uno’ will become ‘Numero Dos’ [a reasonable expectation].

Overall, it is well worth reading and understanding the implications of high, low, or no-growths of various countries to 2035. In the excellent WELT2021, we, in International Business, applaud “CEBR” for exemplary work.

Reality: As in ancient times, the user of the Abacus as his ‘tool’, to the present time, with a written ‘tool’, the wise operator, using such ‘devices’ stays ahead of the mere Sheep.

“Transportation Corridors” Leading To Nowhere: Countries’ Political Corruptions

It is interesting that countries with great historical trade routes are not being facilitated with honest political leaders. For example, to quote Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani: “Afghanistan is one of these places of intersection, as historical trade roads ranging from the grand trunk road to the lapis lazuli and silk met here,” …. “Names given to us capture the significance of our location best: the heart of Asia; gates of India; land bridge; roundabout, a place where goods, ideas, and people freely move, circulate and interact; Switzerland of Asia.”. And of course, another example is Greece [superbly centrally located as to Africa, Europe, and the Middle East]; we shall discuss.

As to Afghanistan, First Vice President Amrullah Saleh has decried corruption on-going in his country. Mr. Saleh thinks there is ‘big-time’ corruption occurring, yet there are no investigations of the miscreants. Saleh said, “this is a forgotten corner,” and that “to this date, ministers, generals, directors and even politicians of high stature have been charged but no member of the parliament has paid any price for their involvement in corruption.” Benefits from Afghanistan’s 600,000+/- acres of Poppy fields down-stream productions, can be very enticing to some in Kabul. With America’s support of monies and personnel, the Poppy fields have greatly expanded as to acreage. Which Americans, we ask, have and will benefit from the downstream productions; it is more than ‘International Relations’ munificence that is the propulsion of this particular U.S. Aid.

As to Greece (10,000,000+ Population), long ago we had written that the $375,000,000,000.00+ [estimated government debt] was beyond being absolutely atrocious for a ‘small’ country. It had NO “ministers, generals, directors and even politicians of high stature” investigated, prosecuted, found guilty, and incarcerated in “Korydallos” Prison [or other secured containment location]. The rampant acquisition of military equipment it could not afford, at the time, such as submarines from Germany, and other ‘high-priced hardware, leads one to assume bribery flourished. Since that time, the lack of judicial redress to the ‘Financial Treason” by the perpetrators, suggest that bribery by some of the new ‘Operators’ of the country is possible. The corruption of the powerful in Greece has been “sárose káto apó to chalí”. As International Businessmen, we think this is such a shame to the honor of Greece, and such a theft to the Greek Citizenry; they deserve better.

China has determined that ‘location, location, location’ as to Greece, is of great benefit to the ‘Dragon’s’ commercial needs. It has paid substantial amounts to develop Piraeus harbor and can further assist in a transportation corridor to the rest of Europe. It is our hope that the monies paid, go towards the Greek people and not into Swiss Bank Accounts of the Greek ‘Untouchables’, as we have discussed. Of course, if challenged about ‘Bribery’ or ‘Embezzlement’, each ‘Untouchable ‘ will declare “Θεν έχω χπήματα”.

The upcoming Natural Gas flows eventually through Greece to Europe should make Greeks happy. However, one can assume that some Swiss Bankers will even be happier with their “Depositors from Athens”.

Reality: As to “Forks in the Road”, to the Injudicious, there is a quandary as to which way to go; to those of Integrity, the correct route is a “lighted superhighway”.

Tuesday, 3 November, 2020, American Election: As International Businessmen, We Present Our Analyses, For Those Prudent: Where The Future Winners Will Be, And Advise Where, And When, Others Should Discard ‘Losing Cards In Their Hands’.

The coming, election in America, will offer some Industries,  Investors, and even Countries, Improved Benefits and Profits, thereafter.  Current Investors and some other Countries may find: “The Future May Not Bode Well”; As to those Industries and locations where monies are presently committed, adjustments will be needed.

For our Subscribers, gain from our analyses of businesses, countries, and industries that will be moving ahead in 2021; this due to results of the coming election. We foresee the ‘shackles’ of many decades of ‘Special Interest Groups’ conniving [lead by the Puppet Masters’ Masters] being removed. That constant economic burden to America, being made effete, will provide opportunities for growth, seldom seen. As to other industries, that have historically prospered due to the ‘graft’, one may want to ‘Short their stocks’.

Reality: Beyond the horizon, many changes await, for America. A word to the Wise is sufficient.

The Virus Of “Arrogance” Can Be As Deadly As The ‘Natural Diseases’ Created By Mother Nature

As we look at the various decisions made by various Business, Intelligence, Government, and Political leaders, we cannot but recognize the dire consequences which have occurred; this by their arrogance of the inviolability of their ideations. There are a number of examples available; these which caused loss of life to innocent people.

One Business, a Airframe manufacture, its arrogant executives ‘bought off’ on the idea: Pilots of various airlines could and would learn how to fly a ‘re-vamped’ model of a aircraft; this, not by using expensive “Flight Simulators” but by using “Apple I-Phones” with a pertinent ‘App’! While we both applaud, and we all use the excellent “Apple” products, we think it was absolutely ludicrous to go ‘down this runway’ for Pilot Education and Training. The consequences of the “Let us gain even more profit by NOT purchasing Flight Simulators, but use ‘Apple I-Pads'” were the deaths of innocent crew members and passengers on two aircraft. We find it most interesting that, to date, NO government pronouncements of “Criminal Culpability” and prosecution on these inept ‘Executives’ have been made as to these travesties. Instead, the head of the company merely stated his angst over these deaths.

A far greater cause of both massive deaths, as well as a Nation’s destruction physically, was the opinion by the head of a Intelligence Agency; this, that Iraq’s President Saddam Hussein, possessed “Weapons of Mass Destruction”. The Director of the Agency reportedly stated: “It was a ‘Slam Dunk’ that Saddam had such weaponry”! As a result, Governments‘ leaders arrogantly decided to devastate not just Saddam Hussein, and his sons Ouday and Qusay, but also the country of Iraq! The fact that Saddam’s Mistress, who was a intelligence source to the Intelligence Agency at the time, had allegedly told it: ‘Saddam was fearful of the unreliability of such weapons and distrusted them’! We also, understand that for certain individuals, who were and are currently part of the “Governatorship Cabal”: ‘Strong-man’ Saddam was a impeding force, that was to be removed; along with other area strongmen. However, we are of the opinion that hegemonic desires to destroy a country, its people, and culture, to: “Get Rid Of Three People”, is a Crime Against Humanity.

Political leaders have negligently caused the deaths of people as to the current CV 19 pandemic. We think they have done this with their arrogance of thinking how they ‘know’ how to eliminate the virus from infection of their citizens. Many acted through shut-downs of businesses and restrictions on mobility in cities. The economically ruined business owners and investors have allegedly had heart attacks, strokes, et al, resulting in their eventual deaths, and some have committed suicide. Citizens, such as many in New York City, have ‘self-destructed’ due to confinements mandated by Government authorities. Unfortunately, the citizens did NOT gain “CV19” immunity through their isolation.

The ‘Human Frailty’ of arrogance needs to be curtailed. Leaders need to know their positions in their careers, do not bestow on them omnipotence and omniscience; in fact, unless they are Founders of their organizations, they are immediately replaceable. Most have merely risen to the top by acceding to the wishes of their superiors. They are NOT innovators; they are merely ‘cogs in a wheel’. We, as International Businessmen, see them time and again.

Reality: Those who can look into a mirror and see a ‘Halo of Wisdom’ above their heads, should inspect above the mirror for defective lighting.

World Shipping Industry: For Captains And Crews There Are No “Safe Harbors” For Free And Ready Transits Home

The current Covid 19 [CV19] pandemic has spawned a ‘Social Pandemic’, we, who, for many decades, closely follow ‘Merchant Shipping’, have never seen before. It is a situation of government leaders deciding not to allow crew transits from ships to shore for egress to other nations; for CV 19 contamination reasons. Evidencing much ineptness of logical thought, these government leaders disregard the facts of crews being isolated during their voyages and are NOT carrying CV 19 with them. These ‘situations’ offer: “The crews are not contaminated; people on shore may well be. Ergo, the crews face the risk of contracting CV 19 [not the other way around].”

Furthering the ‘Contamination Concept’ we wonder how many “Ship Chandlers” outfits have been closely tested and or quarantined; this, for their interfaces with both ships’ crew-members and supplies coming in-bound off the ships, goods for later re-sale to other ships, to their organizations? We have heard of none. Perhaps because they are ‘Locals’, governments’ Ports Authorities have deemed them “In-contaminable’?

Going ‘up the ladder towards the bridge’ there are many “middle-men” who are responsible for ships’ crew’s employment. It appears to us they have done next to nothing, on a macro-level, to put pressure to bear on their governments to de-escalate the ‘Slave-Labor (Voluntary, turned to Involuntary Servitude) being ‘stuck aboard ship’ for months.

Upon the bridge, ship-owners, bankers, investors, et al have acted with ‘Effete Dynamism‘ in solving this crisis to crews. As the adage states: “What goes around, will come around.” A dearth of enthusiastic crew members makes for a greater potential of: Cargo mis-handlings; Crew Injuries; Fires; and Sailing Mishaps.

It is our opinion that it is well likely that Maritime Insurance costs will rise, as maladies start occurring at a greater rate in the industry. As many crew members decide to change careers or retire earlier, “newbies” who enter the business will make a greater incidence of errors; leading to many of the aforementioned problems. There is no substitute for experience. As International Businessmen, we would think that at the present moment, many Insurers in Hamilton, London, New York City and others, would be taking a serious look at potential risk exposures brought about mainly through ineptness of decisions and dearth of training.

The other adjoining group that should be closely reviewed are the ‘Ship Registrations’. We have not seen a great deal of progress by any of them to conjoin with each other and quickly solve this ‘Humanitarian Issue’ for ship crews. “Why Not”, we ask. Is it that managements of such registries ‘do not have a clue’ to solving problems? They do have a responsibility to regulate those vessels under their purview.

Due to “Supply Chain” conundrums, we find it amazing that the world Main Stream Media, has largely ignored this vital industry’s current dilemma. If goods cannot be transferred from the manufacturer to the wholesaler; then, goods from the wholesale to the retailer to the customers, are a mere hologram. Who outside of “Bloomberg” clearly presents this dilemma to the public? We, as analysts of all types of shipping everywhere, are familiar; the “Men and Women of the world” are not. They will be irate when they cannot locate that which has NOT been shipped to their favorite stores. Is not this subject newsworthy?

Reality: The severity of a Pandemic is exacerbated by multiple very poor decisions, by many, in various ‘arenas’, that have portrayed themselves as omniscient; their decisions are substantively ‘Chalcopyrite’ [Fool’s Gold].

Countries Getting Through The Covid Crisis Are Quantified

An excellent report, thorough in its scope, has been created by ‘Horizon Insight and Strategy’; it is called “Recover, (Re)build: Exploring Country Capacity Post-COVID”. This work analyzes 122 countries throughout the world and looks at ‘Resiliency Elements’ for economic success, after this Influenza gets defeated.

Beyond the economic capitalizations of countries being vastly different, other elements come into play after Covid 19. Using technology by a country’s population, such as the Internet can help; having a workforce ‘mind-think’ of adaptation to the new ‘world’ can be of use; upgrading financial systems will be of assistance; having countries’ Leaders that can ACTUALLY lead would be of great benefit; thinking on a ‘macro’ level is beneficial.

We, as International Businessmen, can also add: ‘Intellect’ is fine but it also needs to be reinforced with ‘Intrepidness’. As we have seen in others, over the many decades, when confronted with a ‘Unknown’, many people just ‘cry into their beers’: “Alas, woe are we.” Weakness is a luxury no one can afford. The World belongs to the Aggressive.

Reality: Although it might at times not appear so, there is reasonableness in being resolute: “It is better to wear out, than to rust out.”

India’s Punjab Produces Performing Products, This, In Very Trying Times: Sonalika Tractors

The adage: ” ‘Trying Times’, for the ‘Weak’, are ‘Crying Times’; for the ‘Strong’ they are ‘Prying Times'”, applies in Punjab, India. The maker of tractors, “Sonalika”, in Hoshiarpur, “pried open, with a ‘crow bar”‘, manufacture and marketing of their fine tractors and received excellent results: Record Sales.

We, in International Business, have seen it time and time again: Manufacturers who look ‘beyond the horizon’, accept conclusions, after their careful analyses, then act decisively. They create better products, offer them at proper ‘price-points’, with aggressive marketing; and, beat their competitors every time! In ‘tight economies’, while consistency of ‘Quality’ will bring forth new ‘lookers’, ‘Realistic Cost’ to customers, will turn them into ‘buyers’. In a “Negative Economy”: a ‘Seller’ must sell, or go out of business; a ‘Buyer’ does not have to buy.

Sonalika Tractors management, obviously put forth its ideation and manufacturing actions, long before, the CV-19 Pandemic. It certainly takes time to source suppliers, build, or have built to specifications, verify quality, then assemble components to create the tractors. While that is occurring, the Marketing/Sales Departments must think of creating ‘Customer Excitement’ for ‘Sizzle Sells’ the products. Where there are no ‘positive’ emotions, there are no purchasers. Obviously Sonalika Tractors personnel accomplished their objectives.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi must be pleased, for Sonalika Tractors are copacetic with his ‘Make In India’ mantra; a economically sound objective. India certainly has: Natural resources for manufacturing; Personnel quite capable; and Quality of culture, which has and will endure.

Reality: Think ahead, Act ahead; then, Look behind, and see your followers.

Main Stream Media’s Fascination Of Firearm’s Violence Neglects Attention Of Other Means

America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] released its important listing of firearms ‘Background Checks’ of citizens, for the month of June, 2020. One must be ‘cleared’ by legal authorities, in order to purchase an approved handgun, rifle, or shotgun. The list of ‘negating reasons’ that will prevent a authorization to buy a firearm is quite extensive.

The FBI stated that nearly 4,000,000 ‘National Instant Criminal Background Check System’ (NICS) checks were made in June. This was a historical ‘high’ as to examinations of ‘bona fides’ to purchase arms. A estimated 2,387,524 firearms were sold during the month.

If one reviews the numbers provided by the World Bank [https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/VC.IHR.PSRC.P5], one sees that there are five homicide deaths per one hundred thousand persons in America. Firearms deaths are a mere component of the aforementioned; This, relative to all the countries examined. In conjunction with America’s large population of approximately 331,000,000+, living in 9,833,517 sq. km. [3,796,742 sq. mi.], the death percentage is quite low. As are the number of policemen, per square mile, available ’24/7/365′.

Our having been in various, physically precarious situations over the years, in a variety of geographic locations, particularly in precious metals mining, we can readily understand the enthusiasm of Americans for self-protection. A old mining adage is: “A friend [handgun], when in need, is a friend, indeed.” It is part of the psyche of independence and self-reliance to handle negative situations; if no law enforcement is available, ‘Do your best to survive’.

What we have a very hard time understanding, as International Businessmen, are Main Stream Media’s {MSM’s] incessant attention to shootings, especially in America. Yet, if there are multiple victims: by bludgeoning, poisoning, stabbing or suffocation, NEXT TO NOTHING is mentioned. If any of these hostile actions occur to a single individual, it may not even ‘make the news’. If the hostilities occur in other countries, MSM will barely mention them. Why is that?

As we think about MSM’s rationale for its timid reporting of the aforementioned, non-firearms, hostilities, we ponder such reasoning. Perhaps it is because these ‘Journalism Majors’ are “Acousticians”, who deplore the noises generated by firearms? Kill people quietly, and while not approved by MSM, it is certainly more fashionably “Green’, in an environmental sense. There are no people who suffer ‘Acoustic Trauma’ nor ‘Bilateral Tinnitus’ as a result of the ‘quiet killings’ as there are with firearms.

As we try to make serious sense of MSM’s continual attempts to ‘De-Arm America’ there is one hypothesis that nags at us. That is: “Are those in MSM surreptitiously acting as agents of enemies of America?” “Do they want a ‘Dis-armed America’ because it is too hard to conquer a 331,000,000+ manned ‘citizen-armed militia’? This force with even many more weapons [and bullets] than personnel?” Paranoia: ‘No’, just good military appraisal.

Which armies of any nation on Earth could possibly win against America’s 331,000,00+ ‘combatants’, ‘armed to the teeth’? Which political leader of any hostile country could convince his military leaders of the probability of success in ‘taking on America’? NONE! Those with stars on their uniforms, around the world, understand the teachings of Sun Tzu’s ‘The Art of War’. To wit: “A battle is won or lost before it begins.”

Assuming world leaders understand the numbers of weapons and ammunition, along with the U.S.A. population, then the tactic changes. It goes from not fighting, due to numerical armed inferiority, to: Disarm the possible combatants. This requires of another hostile country: MSM ‘conscripts’ along with ‘pliable politicians’ doing the work for the enemy forces. By ‘raising alarm’ no matter what the facts are, both ‘Agent-Groups’ can try to sell disarmament to the U.S. public. If that does not work, a ‘Executive Order’ might be employed, to by-pass legislation. Unfortunately, these are not ‘movie scenes’ but possible tactics of hegemonic nations.

Another related tactic, as we have written in other articles, is to establish entropy in America through ‘Anarchy’ and ‘Chaos’. By demoralizing the citizenry, political upheaval may result. It is much easier to slaughter the sheep, by wolves, if the faithful sheep dogs, have been removed.

Again, if one thinks beyond the sizzle, he is hearing, he might smell the stench of Treason, which can become quite odoriferous over time. To Cabalists and hypocritical Politicians, we say: “Those of us with experience can readily comprehend your treacheries. Before you strut around pompously, make sure it is not on top of quicksand. There are no long term secrets.”

There is a old “Greek Sheepherder’s adage”, used to judge both politicians and other well-publicized people: “Be most leery of the Wolves, who have learned to bleat, as though they are Sheep”.

Reality: There is no substitute for experience. Get your teeth kicked in enough, and they will become petrified; especially one’s ‘Canines’.

Food For Thought: In Berlin, Necessity Is The Mother Of Invention

Some Berliners have turned their despair into successful action; this, by using their native intellect. They were closed down, of their restaurant activities, by local authorities due to CV-19 concerns. Rather than ‘cry into their beers’, they ideated aggressive tactics for success. These various individuals took their food offerings both to possible customers, in communications, and immediately thereafter, in delivered purchases to their lucky ‘fans’.

Resourceful Germans understand: “When, ‘situations’ get tough, you also get tough; laugh capricious fate in the face, with ‘Survivor’s Confidence'”. One will never develop strong muscles without exercise.

All of these Berliners who took to the road of action, not woeful despair, are to be congratulated. They have acted, as one would expect of ‘Germans’: A synthesis of Intellect combined with Tenacity.

Reality: Fate has no respect for men made of straw.

The ‘Globalists’ “Terrible Times Triumvirate” Agents, Against ‘Internationalists’: N. Tropy and his Steadfast Stalwarts being ‘Ann Archy’ and ‘Kay Oss’

Our having roles in International Business for many decades, has allowed us to qualify as ‘Having been around the block many times’. As such, we have witnessed the same scenarios played out often around the world: ‘Globalists’ who seek conjunctions of many countries into a few ‘blocs’ [for ease of their global control strategies]. ‘Internationalists’ on the other hand, WANT the 200+ Nations on Earth to be independent of each other. A multiplicity of powers: thereby being relatively equal, to each Nation’s unique assets [human and natural], and locations geographically.

As an iceberg displays a mere 10% of itself above the water [90% being submerged, so is ‘murkier’ from above]; such are Globalists’ cabals. They will employ various social tactics, to cause political upheavals, for their own economic gains.

More ‘recent’ examples, of which we have previously written: Joseph Patrick Kennedy Sr.’s attempts to take over Vietnam initially, later, Cuba, then back to Vietnam [after his son was elected U.S. President]. You may want to review our past articles about these subjects. The point being: In EACH case, to achieve economic goals, social entropy was created, which was designed for political changes; so he and his associates could realize vast economic gains. The citizens of those countries ‘be damned’ was their credo.

Presently, throughout the world, there are social movements utilized to hide Globalists true intentions. The plotters want to put political pressure on Nations leaders so they can achieve their own economic goals quicker. There are only a few Strong World Leaders; other Leaders are mere ‘leaders’. This is a reality of life. The plotters think they will win.

When one hears about ‘Global Warming'[now, more ‘fashionably’ “Climate Change”], ‘Clean Energy’ (Geo-Thermal, Solar, and Wind) ask: “Who is funding the protestors?” Moreover, “Who really gains with the changes?”

Another ‘in vogue’ protest now is: “De-funding or Eliminating Police Departments”. “Who gains economically?” We submit: ‘Ann Archy’ and ‘Kay Oss’ would prosper. And both, as one can see on television, can provide protestors’ emotional ‘sizzle’. “Law and Order” be damned. In fact, ‘Masked Robbers” are no longer ‘in play’, today it is ‘Mask-less’ arsonists, looters, robbers, and murderers; because they have ‘legitimate complaints’, some say.

We can continue on but the basic idea is “As with an iceberg with 90% of its mass largely out of easy view, ‘Globalists’ need obscurity. They need Strong Leaders to be removed from office so mere ‘Puppets’ can replace them. If done, ‘Globalists’ can have ‘free rein’ to rule as they choose.

We prefer Nations to freely and openly engage in commerce, while protecting their individual sovereignties. Their commercial regulations apply to themselves, not to other Nations. They cooperate with other countries but do what is best for their own citizenry. Such leaders DO NOT push off their people to other Nations because they are too lazy to solve their own economic difficulties. Interestingly, there will be a small group of ‘wealthy’ in each country of which we are speaking. They just help themselves.

It is our opinion that International Trade should be encouraged anyway possible: Dredging harbors,; building wharfs; facilitating ship licensing; training pilots; expanding airport runways, paving highways, et al.

By NOT having a few “Globalists’ control the world, with citizens being their serfs, people far and wide prosper.

With plentiful commerce, people gain financially. De-regulation, of business activities is the fuel for economic growth. In growth are the roots of survival of Nations.

Reality: The diversity of Nations is copacetic with the proviso: “Nature abhors singularities”. The ‘More, The Better’.
